I developed Tokophobia at around junior/secondary school, and I'm so glad that the phobia is becoming more recognised. "Tokophobia is a pathological fear of pregnancy and can lead to avoidance of childbirth. It can be classified as primary or secondary. Primary is morbid fear of childbirth in a woman, who has no previous experience of pregnancy"
I've obviously never been pregnant, but even the sight of a pregnant person or the talk of pregnancy and childbirth makes me feel physically sick and uncomfortable and makes my anxiety increase. Hey, I even almost got sacked from working at Subway because I freaked out when trying to wrap up a pregnant woman's sandwich and accidentally threw it at her
Love working with kids and I think babies are adorable but anything else before that, no thank you #tokophobia #phobia #anxiety #mentalhealth #timetochangecampaign

"I do not like children or babies, which people cannot understand at all. If people could be more sensitive of this matter, instead of just impulsively reacting as if it is a rather strange phobia, it would help a lot." C.T. wants to bring about more awareness of tokophobia so it becomes more accepted within society. Link in bio.
